I don’t think we completely understand what is going on in Afghanistan. There are a lot of moving parts, and many countries are involved. If there is one thing we have learned over the past few years, the media is the propaganda machine of the communist party. We are not going to hear the complete truth from them. Whatever the truth is, we know we have fellow Christians who are there and maybe in trouble, so we need to cry out to God on their behalf. Pull your sword out of its sheath and go into battle for our sisters and brothers in Christ and those who are innocent in this situation. It’s time to armor up! Let’s slay the enemy the only way we know how, prayer! Not just any kind of prayer, travailing prayer!
If you haven’t read Habakkuk, read it! It sounds a lot like our complaint about justice today. God gives us an excellent answer to our complaints. He will not delay.
Habakkuk’s complaint, in part:
You who are of purer eyes than to see evil and cannot look at wrong, why do you idly look at traitors and remain silent when the wicked swallows up the man more righteous than he? Habakkuk 1:13
God’s answer, in part:
For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. “Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him, but the righteous shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2:3-4
